On the vibrant evening of September 7th, Onslow hosted an exceptional Venison Canning Class that resonated with success! Gratitude extends to Barbara Smith, a Master Officer with the NC Wildlife Resources Commission, for shedding light on local hunting laws and regulations. The informative session delved into the intricacies of wildlife management, enriching the experience for all participants.

The event featured the expertise of Melissa Huffman, our esteemed Field Crops & Livestock Agent, who illuminated the audience on the nuances of wild game health and diseases to be mindful of. This valuable insight added depth to the discussion, fostering a comprehensive understanding of the holistic approach needed when dealing with venison.

The spotlight then turned to the dynamic trio of Jessica Gardner, Stephanie Stevenson, and Sarah Ware—dedicated Family & Consumer Sciences Agents. Their collective wisdom unfolded as they skillfully guided attendees through the art of pressure canning venison, emphasizing the importance of food safety both in the field and during processing. Their engaging presentations not only showcased their passion for the subject but also empowered participants with practical knowledge they could apply in their culinary pursuits.

This collaborative effort transformed the Venison Canning Class into an educational and interactive experience, creating a space where the community could come together to appreciate the intersection of hunting, cooking, and food safety. The success of the event speaks volumes about the commitment of our speakers and the enthusiasm of the participants, setting a high standard for future community-centric initiatives.

As we express our sincere thanks to all involved, we eagerly anticipate more opportunities to explore and celebrate the diverse facets of our local community. The Venison Canning Class was not just a learning experience; it was a celebration of shared knowledge and a testament to the thriving spirit of collaboration within Onslow. Here’s to more enriching gatherings that blend education, community engagement, and the joy of culinary exploration!
